Course Syllabus

This hospitality course is divided into three modules:

Module 1 - Introduction to Hospitality Management

The introductory course module starts out by providing candidates with a detailed overview of the recent evolution of the hospitality industry, along with how it stands today. Several common hotel types and different specifications of accommodation are brought into the discussion, along with how efficient organisational structures and systems of management can contribute to the success or otherwise of the business as a whole.

Module 2 - Front Office Operations

Course content in Module 2 centres on the front-of-house team and the primary responsibilities of the reception area and front desk. Candidates explore the roles and duties of those working front-of-house, including the processing of arrivals and departures, making and amending reservations, maintaining high customer service standards at all times and ensuring that all front-of-house duties are flawlessly coordinated with all other departments.

Module 3 - Housekeeping and Food Management

Closing the course, Module 3 shifts focus to the management of hotel F&B and housekeeping departments. Once again, the daily duties and responsibilities of their respective team members are discussed, along with provision of essential housekeeping services, recording and tending to maintenance issues, restaurant menu planning, table plans and seating arrangements, cost control and budgeting, management of customer service standards and more.
